Chicago, IL 60637

The Hyde Park outpost of Cemitas Puebla is the third Chicago installment of this family-owned Mexican spot that specializes in Poblano foods. Owner Tony Anteliz frequently visits Oaxaca for authentic Mexican cheese and other goods, and he crafts the signature Cemita sandwich with Krakus ham, guajillo-rubbed pork loin, and breaded pork milanesa, all topped with avocado, smoky chipotles, and Oaxacan string cheese. The joint's salsas and chipotles (made in-house) are not to be missed.
